Aber and Inver are common elements in place-names of Celtic origin.
In the field of physics, engineering, and earth sciences, advection is the transport of a substance by bulk motion.
In geography, a confluence (also: conflux) occurs where two or more flowing bodies of water join together to form a single channel.
The density, or more precisely, the volumetric mass density, of a substance is its mass per unit volume.
Diffusion is the net movement of molecules or atoms from a region of high concentration (or high chemical potential) to a region of low concentration (or low chemical potential) as a result of random motion of the molecules or atoms.
An estuary is a partially enclosed coastal body of brackish water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea.
A lake is an area filled with water, localized in a basin, that is surrounded by land, apart from any river or other outlet that serves to feed or drain the lake.
A landform is a natural feature of the solid surface of the Earth or other planetary body.
Liman defined in Bulgarian, Ukrainian, Russian (Лиман) and Romanian (liman) the enlarged estuaries formed as lagoons at the widening mouth of one or several rivers, where flow is blocked by a bar of sediments, as the Dniester Liman or the Razelm liman; a liman can be maritime (the bar being created by the current of a sea) or fluvial (the bar being created by the flow of a bigger river at the confluence).
An ocean (the sea of classical antiquity) is a body of saline water that composes much of a planet's hydrosphere.
A reservoir (from French réservoir – a "tank") is a storage space for fluids.
A river is a natural flowing watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river.
A river delta is a landform that forms from deposition of sediment carried by a river as the flow leaves its mouth and enters slower-moving or stagnant water.
The River Plym is a river in Devon, England.
The River Sid is a minor river in East Devon.
The River Yare is a river in the English county of Norfolk.
A sea is a large body of salt water that is surrounded in whole or in part by land.
Sediment is a naturally occurring material that is broken down by processes of weathering and erosion, and is subsequently transported by the action of wind, water, or ice, and/or by the force of gravity acting on the particles.
A seiche is a standing wave in an enclosed or partially enclosed body of water.
In oceanography, geomorphology, and earth sciences, a shoal is a natural submerged ridge, bank, or bar that consists of, or is covered by, sand or other unconsolidated material, and rises from the bed of a body of water to near the surface.
A spit or sandspit is a deposition bar or beach landform off coasts or lake shores.
Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun and the rotation of Earth.
